The sixth installment in the Dangerous Intersections 7" series from Traffic Street Records. This time around, you get one brand new song from each of the following four bands.
From Colorado comes some of the sludgiest, heaviest, most fucked up pop punk ever. People throw around Crimsphrine a lot as a point of reference for describing a band, but No High Fives To Bullshit are one of the only bands that actually have some of that energy and grit that everybody else is only hoping will come across in playing scrubby punk rock. And whereas other bands imitate, these guys take that basic idea and build on it to create something new.
Catchy, fast-as-fuck pop punk from MPLS in the spirit of Rivethead, The Manix have written a song that's going to be stuck in your head for the rest of your life. If you're a fan of any of the current MPLS bands (especially Banner Pilot and Apocalypse Meow -two bands that share members with The Manix), you're going to be thrilled with these guys.
Want a new Ergs! song? Tough luck! Want a new song from a young St. Louis band that can write some seriously Ergs!-ish pop punk without sounding at all like copycats? Well you're in luck! The Humanoids serve up some smart, slick pop punk that'll appeal equally to fans in the Ramonescore, East Bay, and Gainesville camps.
What would Dangerous Intersections be without one song that seems at least sort of out of place? The Taxpayers offer up a 4-minute epic motherfucker of a song that should sit pretty well with fans of The Sidekicks and anybody that thought "The Disco Before The Breakdown" was a step forward, rather than the beginning of the end. We think it rules.
Three out of four of these songs were handpicked from what would have otherwise been 7" EPs. That means that you're getting the best song that every band possibly has to offer. And not to disparage any of the past installments, but that selection process has resulted in what is quite arguably the best Dangerous Intersections to date.
